LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The bodies of three young girls allegedly stabbed to death by their mother have been moved from the Los Angeles County morgue to a mortuary where officials have offered free burial services.
The Daily Breeze reports (http://bit.ly/SeWn9F) officials at Green Hills Mortuary in Rancho Palos Verdes offered help after reading of fundraisers planned to assist the family with costs, which could have reached $25,000. The bodies of the girls _ ages 2, 16 months and 2 months _ were transported Tuesday.
The girls' mother, 30-year-old Carol Coronado, was charged last week with three counts of murder. She is being held in the jail ward of an LA hospital.
No motive for the killings has been released. Investigators are checking Coronado's medical and mental health history and trying to determine whether she suffered from postpartum depression.
